Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! arrive on November 16 on the Nintendo Switch.
Such evolution stages of Pokemon have not been featured in any Kanto region video game before Pokemon Let's Go.
Serebii.net has received early leaks of the coming month's CoroCoro, a children's manga magazine that has historically revealed news for the Pokemon franchise due to its close ties to the Pokemon Company. To start, Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise will get to Mega Evolve but more Gen 1 Pokemon will be added to the list soon.
The scans of the Japanese gaming magazine's pages show us the Pokemon figures are in their Mega Evolutions stage while being in a battle. Of these features, one of the most exciting has to be the return of Mega Evolution.
Utilizing a Mega Evolution in Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee! will still require trainers to have the Key Stone equipped and the Pokemon must have its specific associated Mega Stone.
The images also gave us a glimpse of the Vermilion City Gym as well as Lt. Surge. Just as in the original Pokemon Yellow version, Lt. Surge battles alongside a Raichu, but players must first solve a puzzle in his Gym before getting the opportunity to challenge him.
Jessie and James, the classic, iconic Team Rocket duo, from everyone's childhood also make their triumphant Pokemon Let's Go debut, sporting their usual team of low-leveled Poison-type Pokemon.
